What do Chemical Engineers do?

Chemical engineers apply the principles of chemistry, biology, physics, and math to solve problems that involve the production or use of chemicals, fuel, drugs, food, and many other products. They design processes and equipment for large-scale safe and sustainable manufacturing, plan and test methods of manufacturing products and treating byproducts, and supervise production.

Research Program

Department experimental environments range from ultrahigh vacuum to extreme static pressures, from liquid helium to refractory melting temperatures. Species include electrons, simple molecules, salts, detergents, polymers, semi-conductors, and bacteria. Analyses range from the distribution of aqueous solutes in porous electrodes to the complex reaction mechanisms in thin-film deposition.


What is this view?

You are using a dynamic assistive view of the University of Florida site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
